The Winged Eminence Of Darkness of Penneshaw is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 23.674 billion Penneshawians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Penneshawian economy, worth a remarkable 1,413 trillion Bloods a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,713 Bloods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Penneshaw. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penneshaw's national animal is the Angel of Death, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cruor.

Penneshaw is ranked 159,738th in the world and 110th in Ordo Imperialia for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.55 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
